  Norse mythology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Today, the mythology is a source of inspiration in literature (see Norse mythological influences on later literature), and as a system of belief it has been revived as the Ásatrú or Odinism.
An important problem in interpreting indigenous religious mythologies is that often the closest accounts that we have to "pre-contact" times were written by Christian missionaries or Christian converts who were obviously biased against the former faith, and even taught to refer to it as the work of the Devil.
Norse mythology also influenced Richard Wagner 's use of literary themes from it to compose the four operas that comprise Der Ring des Nibelungen ( The Ring of the Nibelung).

 Norse mythology
Norse mythology represents the early pre- Christian religion, beliefs and legends of the Scandinavian people.
More benevolent creatures were Hugin and Munin (thought and memory), the two ravens who kept Odin, the chief god, appraised of what was happening on earth, and Ratatosk, the squirrel which scampered in the branches of the world ash, Yggdrasil which is central to the conception of this world.
An interesting aspect of this mythology is that it (along with many other polytheistic religions) is utterly lacking in dualism.

 Norse Mythology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Norse mythology, in particular, began to take its shape around 800 B.C and consisted of the collection of myths of the Scandinavians (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland).
According to Norse mythology, creation began when Ginnungagap (a great void filled with powerful magic forces) was suddenly filled with rain from the rivers of Nifleheimir (a dark, misty world of death that had always existed).
In a sense, Norse mythology was a way to explain the powerful forces that were beyond human control.

I noticed a strong slant towards finding a "uniqueness" about norse mythology and culture, which may not be entirely without merit, but simply was not justified by the material provided.
Norse mythology is NOT celtic, not anglo-saxon mythology, and "the nine worlds" should not be mentioned at all in the article in my opinion.
One mention of the Norse mythology file, it would be more desirable to have smaller sections that great big large ones.

 Embla Articles: Norse mythology - cheap icons for nationalism
Norse mythology is part of a heathen religion with a multitude of gods and goddesses, each controlling his or her own domain.
By linking their struggle for a white Norway to Norse mythology, the right wing forces also try to achieve legitimacy by portraying themselves as part of an ongoing Nordic tradition, starting with the Vikings and continuing with militant neo-Nazis.
It is therefore a challenge for Norwegians in general, and the young in particular, to retrieve both their history and mythology cleansed of extreme right wing meanings.

 GREEK vs. NORSE MYTHOLOGY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
I see mythology as an attempt by a people to explain the powerful forces which affect and shape it, that are beyond its control, such as weather, the elements, and nature.
If a mythology is taken as a reflection of the society that worships it, that leads to the conclusion that the Norse women had less stature than Greek women.
Most of the Norse gods were war-like in nature; while the Greeks had deities who affected war, it was certainly not to the same extent as the Norse.

This is a table I am preparing for the article on Norse mythology.
The value of following the two current guides/dictionaries to Norse mythology in English is that they can be justified as using English forms of a kind that is common enough and which, from the purpose of those books, can be looked as the proper encyclopedic forms in English.
